Attention, K-State faculty, staff and students,
Since the start of the fall 2012 semester, K-State has seen a significant increase in the number of phishing scam emails that are trying to steal eID passwords. Thus far, at least 75 K-Staters have been tricked into providing their eID and password to criminals under the guise of needing to upgrade their webmail account or exceeding the mailbox storage limit.
THESE ARE ALL SCAMS. K-State IT support staff will NEVER ask for your password in an email. Do not under any circumstances reply to these scam emails or click on a link in the email and fill out a form with your eID and password. Continue reading “Warning: Increase in phishing scam emails trying to steal K-State eID passwords”

There have been several reports of Apple Macs having issues reconnecting to the KSU Wireless and KSU Housing networks after a user changes their eID password. The best way to resolve this issue is to select KSU Guest from the network list and run through the XpressConnect process again. This will reconnect them to either KSU Wireless or KSU Housing depending on their specific needs.
For more information and to go through the XpressConnect process, visit the wireless access page at wireless.k-state.edu. For further assistance or questions, contact the IT Help Desk at 785-532-7722.
